now is the moment to rise above that cynicism and show the american people that we can still do big things and so he will make the case to congressional leaders that we must reject the politics of least resistance and take on this critical challenge. joining us now is the senate's top republican who will be a key participant in today's talks. senator mitch mcconnell. welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> glad to be here. >> let's start with what happened and from your perspective, where do things stand now ahead of this meeting tonight at the white house. >> well, unfortunately, as the speaker said, they are insisting on the white house and congressional democrats, insisting on really big tax increases as a condition to do anything on the spending side. bret, we believe the president was right back in december when he signed a two-year extension of the current tax rates of raising taxes in the middle of this economic situation we're in is a terrible idea. i mean, just look at the unemployment figures last friday. all the arguments the president used in december still work today. th
amendment. congressman jordan, you are a big sponsor of this. president obama says it would cut medicare and social security much more deeply than paul ryan's budget plan. >> it mirrors the budget proposal that house passed earlier this year. we like to do it as a common sense american plan. americans know we're spend toog much, we're headed for a cliff, we're headed for bankruptcy. let's cut spending in year one, cap it as a percentage of our economy going forward. everyone understands our government is getting too big. do something historic. for the first time in american history, pass a balanced budget amendment through the house and the senate, send it to the states. have this requirement that everyone else has to live under, make the federal government either has a $14 trillion debt, let's make up with the same requirement everyone else has to abide by. >> chris: since sensible. congressman van hollen, what is wrong with cut, cap and balance and what are the chances it will get through the house, senate and signed by the president? >> no one should be fooled about this. they're not
the problem. in two or three years we have a debt crisis. we have to do big bold things or that is where we are head. calling balancing the budget dangerous is unbelievable. here's what we have to do. look mr. president put a plan on the table and we have 16 days and if the president can put details to a plan let's have a national debate and let the american people decide if they want cutting in spending or requiring a balanced budget or common sense versus the president's plan. >> i didn't say it was dangerous. we want to balance the budget. it doesn't balance that budget until 2040. it would require you to lift the debt ceiling by eight trillion. >> gentlemen, we have a lot to cover. we'll get back to a bunch of the issues. if cut, cap and balance fails and i must say most people say whether it is good policy or not, the chance of it passing are slim . the most likely fall back and mitch mcconle's plan. it would allow the president to raise the debt limit two and half trillion without spending cuts and there is talk of floating a trillion in cuts. congressman ben holland. wouldn't that be
say the tea party could be a big winner here in -- >> there is bright lights that shown through. there is a case of hobitry. but there are people who are interested in governing and can get it done. one is ran paul in the senate. he and mitch mcconnel have been bad cop and battered cop pummeling hare reid making it clear they are not unreasonable. that created pressure for harry reid . in the house. allen west who are hardcore tea party, andine though they opposed the boehner deal gave him the yes vote he needed to get back in the negotiating ring. they are willing to be pragmatic to get it better for themselves. >> again, we don't know, if we don't know if it will come together yet. there is a lot of folks to be counted in the senate and house. you wrote many times that washington is the big loser. everybody is saying what is going on up there? but as far as others, besides this place, anyone stand out? >> believers in stimulus. believers in demand side economics. the columnist from the new york times, they took a bad beating in all of this because the president walked away fro
? >> the problem with a myny deal, we have a maxi problem. the big problems aren't going to go away if you cut a mini deal. all it does is delay the moment of truth. apt so i'd say better now than then. if we can't, then we'll take the savings we can get now and we will relitigate this as we get closer to the election. >> all right. in addition to dealing with the content of negotiating this deal, there is a p.r. battle involved here as well. senate majority leader harry reid has had a lot to say about what is standing in the way of getting something done. let's take a listen. >> the obstacle, and i want to be very clear, to finding common ground is republicans stubborn insistence on proit canning tax funding and give-aways to corporations and individualindividuals that don'd the give-aways. >> the president has also framed this choice. earlier in week as kids going to college, or tax breaks for corporate jets. i mean it's something they said with the miles per hour public is an easy choice -- said that american public, an easy choice for them. what is the plan for that bat? >> senator reid ha

conversations with the president about doing the big deal, and taking a big step in the right direction, it is pretty clear to me they are just not willing to do it and the next election matters more than what is right for the country. i am not worried about the next election. forget about the next election. if we do the right thing for the country, we'll not have to worry about who will get elected and who isn't. >> chris: speaker boehner, i want to thank you always coming in . we'll see how the world turns this week. >> we sure about well. >> chris: how the debt ceiling is playing out. what happens next. change engineering in dubai, aluminum production in south africa, and the aerospace industry in the u.s.? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-year lipper average. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. request a prospectus or summary prospectus with investment information, risks, fees and expenses to read and consider carefully before investing. >> i think one of the questions tha
tse and i get a big smile because at the public againsters office you had each of the attorneys carry this at every homicide trial. it is classic. defense 101 and they make it look like it is unsurmountable burden and the visual can stay with the jury and, well, i don't know, maybe they proved it but not all the way up to the red square. and cheney mason made the point that the prosecutor is the one that has the burden. he points to the difference saying they don't have a burden in this case it is up to the prosecution. let's listen to listen in to cheney mason defense counsel. that's why we have a system that says the state has to prove beyond reasonable doubt everything. if they fail to do that then no matter what you may think in this, just go down the line, your obligation is, wait, they haven't proven beyond a reasonable doubt. if they don't prove beyond a reasonable doubt she is in the guilty. this is not a trick. one of the things i was thinking about going back back to the list of evidence and this borrow me because i don't the antis. you don't either, i'm sure. and it bothers

them to speak louder because we want help to change washington. we have a big direction where we are changing so it far and we need more help to go the other direction. this clearly shows why. because obama is still president. and he still wants tax increases, and he still wants to spend more. the speaker tried to lay out a framework that stuck to our principles, but would create jobs with new tax reform and would also lower the spending in washington. >> bret: this is what the "wall street journal" editorial page said saturday about house republicans. "a g.o.p. faction is fixated on a balanced budget amendment. after thursday's stall, the new boehner plan will only authorize the second tranche of debt if two-thirds pass it in the senate and send it to the states for ratification. this will not happen. republicans are not looking like adults to whom voters can entrust the deficit." how do you respond to that? >> why do you believe it could not happen? i believe in this country. i believe this country is worth fighting for. if 16 years ago if we had that one more vote, we wouldn't
open up the back door. there is the proof she could easily get outside, there is the proof she was big enough and strong enough to open the door. you can't get anything better than that. >> judge jeanine: our legal panel is with us now. diana, i'm going right to you. what about the fact that the judge starts today by saying i'm not going to let you get anything in or talk about sexual abuse by george anthony or lee anthony. were you surprised? >> no, in fact, i thought the glass was half full. i was shocked he let them talk about the drowning, honestly, there really wasn't an iota of evidence. if they have that evidence then every family that's not a pool and a child dies you getted to argue drowning. i was supposed the judge gave him that. different the box he sawed himself in and he's not a particularly great organizationed speaker, i thought he made some really good points. i wish shed gun-- i wished they were condensed now, when they quoted "to kill a mockingbird," i was thinking about washington-- >> was it a good idea for jose baez to refer to his on client as a lying no good slu
